Pure ASP Upload Tutorial by Leon Radley

HELP!:)
February 3, 2001 by chris williams
Hello,

I followed your tutorial to the tee. The problem lies in when I try to view it I either get a page can not be found error or it takes me to another page in my website. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Chris

When I apply the PureASPuplaod in my form and click submit, show one blank screen! You extension is not compatible with SQL Server.... Check this!

hmmm

Got the extension to upload images, but cant firgure out how to get the script to work that puts the images into another folder called "images". Not too familiar with Java, so it looks a bit alien. Any tips on integrating that?
actually
February 8, 2001 by juanluis
It posts the images into the folder ok, but it only writes to the database the simple filename, and not the path name of where it is newly located. So when I try and call the images up dynamically within a page, they dont load in, as they are not in the same directory as the page that calls them. I would rather avoid having all my pages and images in the same directory. How do I get this to write the full reltive path name into the DB?
RE: IIS
February 9, 2001 by George Petrov
Sure it is all compatible! But when you don't specify a redirect - you get a blank screen (your form again)
RE: actually
February 9, 2001 by George Petrov
Normally you specify a different path to store the uploads. You do that on the extension properties. So the path is known and there is no need to store it in the db. When you want to use your images - just prefix the filename field with the path.
RE: hmmm
February 9, 2001 by George Petrov
You can just specify upload directory (like images) directly on the extension properties. See above Step 6
ASP For First Time Users
February 12, 2001 by ASP Wanna Be
I want to add ASP functionality to our web site and I would like this file upload to be the first feature we present to our group. We have an ASP supported server, I have several years experience with HTML, Javascipt, DHTML, etc. but cannot seem to get this file to work. I know this is due to my inexperience, and I was wondering if it would be possible for you to 'hold my hand' to help me load this so that I can start my ASP learning curve with this great feature.
I get this error when submiting the upload page

Server object error 'ASP 0177 : 800401f3'

Any ideas greatly appreciated.

p.s this was using the supplied 'ready script' pages

RE: I get this error when submiting the upload page
February 13, 2001 by TSW

I am getting the same error message.

I noticed that a previous post mentioned that you could receive this error if you were running an older version of ADO.  I am running 2.6, so I can eliminate that as the problem.

RE: RE: I get this error when submiting the upload page
February 14, 2001 by Phil

I have found that when the pages are uploaded to the server that it all functions just fine.

The only problem now is the same as other users are finding, the full path to the image is not stored in the database. It has been suggested that the path should be prefixed with the required path...any clues how to do this as I have tried a few ways without any luck.

Would it not be possible to prefix with the full path as specifed when the folder is selected to store the images in?

As ever any help much appreciated as this is a great tool, just stumbling at the last hurdle.

Regards

Phil

IIS5, win2000, SQL server 2000
February 14, 2001 by rachel ricketts

I am trying to get your extension working with SQL server 2000.

I have it working using my own modified versions of the access database and sample pages which came with the download. Strangely I had  problems with this too - if I directly changed the form on upload.asp using server behaviours in ultradev (I tried with both versions 3 and 4) then it wouldn't work, but changing the source code worked.

I am having the same problem changing over to using the SQL server database. When I change the connection string and reassociate the form fields with the database fields using server behaviours, it quits working. The asp page loads up ok and the image file gets uploaded to the server fine but no record is inserted into the database. I am not experienced enough to change the source code to work with SQL server.

Please help if you can!!!

Changing the name of the uploaded file
February 15, 2001 by N I

Leon,

After following the steps in your tutorial it worked great, thanks for that!!  I do have one question though:

Is it possible to rename the uploaded file to avoid overwriting an existing file?  For example, if I am uploading a file named image1.jpg, can I upload it under a different file name such as 03427.jpg.  Maybe the name can be generated from the database?

Any help would be much appreciated.  Thanks for a great tutorial.

RE: IIS5, win2000, SQL server 2000
February 15, 2001 by George Petrov
The extension should work without a problem on SQL 2000. Actually the whole UDzone.com runs on SQL 2000 database and heavily utilizes the Pure ASP File Upload extension (for example when uploading extensions on UDzone.com).
If you have problems with the upload extensions and a Insert/Update Record SB, just remove both from yout page, save and add them again. This mind solve your problems.
RE: Changing the name of the uploaded file
February 15, 2001 by George Petrov
Auto-rename, or prefix with a variable, is a feature of the next version of the extension.
Auto Name Change In Images
February 19, 2001 by Clay Dempsey

I have a problem also with the upload extension.  The extension is great and really cuts out a lot of work.  I do though, however, wish to change the name of each image so that each image will be named uniquely.  How can this be done.  Any input would be helpful.

Thanks,

February 26, 2001 by ten bear

I tried your mxp but got this error message from browser. I uploaded to virtual root directory. Could you suggest how to fix this?  Thank you. An error has occured saving uploaded file!

Maybe the destination directory does not exist, or you don't have write permission.
Please correct and try again

RE: Error Upload
February 26, 2001 by Leon Radley

It's a little hard to say just like this, if you write the line that isn't working then maybe I could think of a soution.

try giving the folder your trying to upload to the right permissions

download the latest ado drivers from www.microsoft.com/data/

try doing a new uploadpage with just the upload extension on and see if that works.

Cheers Leon

RE: RE: Error Upload
February 27, 2001 by ten bear

I tested uploading to www.domaindlx.com and it works.  But It doesn't work on www.brinkster.com   Pls suggest me why and about ado drivers.  I follow your links but it seems to be a lot of download.   Pls let me know which one I must download to get it work.

Allowing an empty upload field
February 28, 2001 by Ben H

Hi,

I've done the form with a few fields, all working fine, but I'd like to be able to allow the user to insert a news item (that's what the form's for) without an image if needs be. I've tried taking out the 'check if the file field is null' bit from the checkFileUpload function, but I get: 'news.FilePath' cannot be a zero-length string

Any pointer would be most welcome - thanks for the tutorial, by the way.

cant get upload extension to work
February 28, 2001 by joe baldwin

hi i have been struggling with this for some time now, so i downloaded your ready script which works fine. when comparing the code for your page and the one i created i noticed that any function commented '(Modified for File Upload)' was different in my script. i think i have followed your intructions to the letter (several times)!!  any idea what i  could  be doing wrong?

thanks
joe baldwin

RE: cant get upload extension to work
February 28, 2001 by George Petrov
You are not doing anything wrong - this is the upload extension itself. The upload extension needs to modify any standard Insert/Update Server Behaviors used on the same page, to make all do form fields working. That is why comments are appearing.
RE: cant get upload extension to work
February 28, 2001 by Leon Radley

This tutorial is in ASP 2.0 / VBscript check that your using that first...
you didn't mension what errors you are getting when you try to upload
download the right  drivers from this url www.microsoft.com/data

then you look for look in previous post if you don't understand where to get the drivers from

send me an email with the code attached and I'll have a look at it.
Cheers

RE: Allowing an empty upload field
February 28, 2001 by George Petrov

Just put the file field from the form within a ASP condition:

<% if hasDownload then %>
<tr>
  <td align="right"><b>Filename</b></td>
  <td><input type="file" name="filename" size="40"></td>
</tr>
<% end if %>

Maybe you can also use the Conditional Region extension.

Upload outside root directory
March 5, 2001 by Jorg Leenaards

Hi,

I would like to use PureASPupload  to upload files on an intranet. The location of the files is not in the root direcory of my intranet. I is on another location in the network.  When I use "browse" to go to that location and I run the script, I get an error saying that the loation does not exists (or that I don't have write permission".  If I use a destination in a folder in the root directory of the intranetlocation, everything works fine.  Any suggestions on how to make the script write the right location ?

Thank you.

Access97/UD1/Upload Compatibility
March 6, 2001 by Mark Tait

Hi - I've cross posted this to the extensions (ASPUpload) - as I'm not sure where to really ask - I've tried the macromedia forum too but have not yet had a response from the forums - this tutorial works brilliantly - until I try and create my own form, and database - The files selected are still uploaded, but no data is written to the database - I have re-created your tutorial using UD1 and MS Access 97, and MDAC 2.5 - is anyone aware of any known reason that affects writing to the database (is the Upload code only fully operational on Access 2000 for instance).

Thanks in advance, and kindest regards, Mark Tait

RE: Upload outside root directory
March 7, 2001 by George Petrov

If you are uploading to any dir - first you should make sure the the anynimous user account (IUSER_computername) has a write/change permission to it.

I'm not sure if the upload will work on a network share. You can try making it a virtual directory first.

RE: Access97/UD1/Upload Compatibility
March 24, 2001 by Raoul Pop

I've just used the PureASPUpload on one of my pages, and I'm encountering the same problem. The form won't insert to the database at all. The file is uploaded, but the database fields are still blank. I'm using Access 2000 on Windows 2000 with IIS 5.0.

If you could also tell me how you got this great form/HTML editor to enter the Replies, I'd love to get it too. I'm looking for a very simple version of it, one that would just substitute <br> when the user presses the "Enter" key and a couple of other things, maybe bullets and numbered lists and the align keys.

Error message - but the program works! 'Form was submitted with no ENCTYPE="multipart/form-data"'
March 26, 2001 by Mark Tait

Hi - I'me following the instructions to the letter (including the field names for the form etc) -  (I've also tried copying and pasting character for character from the working example files for the form) - but I keep getting the message'Form was submitted with no ENCTYPE="multipart/form-data"
Please correct the form attributes and try again.'

The data is appended to the database, and the file is moved into the correct directory - but just can't get passed this error message - has anyone any ideas what may be wrong (my system corrupt?) - I'm using UD1, Access 97 and PWS.

 

Thanks in advance,

RE: Error message - but the program works! 'Form was submitted with no ENCTYPE=
March 26, 2001 by George Petrov
Well the solutions is very simple: As the error says you don't have the attribute ENCTYPE="multipart/form-data" on your form tag! eather add it manually or in you are in DW/UD - delete and add again the file upload field.
RE: RE: Error message - but the program works! 'Form was submitted with no ENCTYPE=
March 26, 2001 by Mark Tait

Hi George - thanks for the quick response - I do have that in my Form tag - I cut and pasted the form from your downloadble examples (after re-doing it manually several times) - all of the fields work - the database is updated and the file is copied, as it's intended to be - hence the reason I was doubting my system set-up (certainly not your excellent program)...I cannot understand why the message comes back - suggests that my system is somehow re-sending the request...

Just managed a work around - for my re-direct file, I was 'mistakingly?' re-directing the page back to itself - if I re-direct it to another page (from the InsertRecord area), I no longer get the message - but the URL shows the re-directed page and '?GP_Upload=True' at the end.

I can live with that, Thanks again, and kindest regards, Mark

Hi I've been following the tutorial and have run into a problem, first you must know that i'm new to the whole database scenealong with programming.  In other words I dont know jack!  But i am trying to learn.
In the tutorial when i get to step 6 where i choose the PureASPupload button i get a popupmessage saying
"Before using this Server Behavior, please create a form that has a file field on it"
What am i not doing?

Thanks
RE: I'm a newbie
March 27, 2001 by George Petrov
Well the message says it all actualy. You should create a form on your page first and add a file upload field on it (from the form objects pallette). Then you should go and apply the Server Behavior.
DB is not being updated!

Hi there!  I've applied this extension to my page, and the files upload fine, but the database remains unchanged.  I do not get any errors.  Do I need to add the "insert record" and "pure asp upload" behaviors in a certain order?  I'm not sure why it's not working.  HELP!

RE: DB is not being updated!
March 27, 2001 by George Petrov
The order of adding the extension shouldn't realy matter.
However if you use Insert/Update Record SB - you should specify there the redirect page and NOT on the Pure Upload Extension.

Pass Form Values to Redirect Page
May 7, 2001 by Pablo Deeleman

Hi! This extension and tutorial have brung a new sense to my life. ;-D

Anyway, i need some help. How is it possible to pass the form values to the redirect page? I´d thank an answer covering both scenarios: a) When the user defines a redirect page in the extension window and b) when the redirect page is the default one defined in the INSERT page.

Thanks in advance

RE: Pass Form Values to Redirect Page
May 7, 2001 by George Petrov

We have a tutorial on this http://www.udzone.com/go?385 

This is just for the standard Insert Server Behavior.

To make it work with Pure Upload you need to change all instances of Request.Form to UploadFormRequest

Some other changes may maybe required but we don't really support this - so use that on your own risk.

RE: RE: Pass Form Values to Redirect Page
May 7, 2001 by Pablo Deeleman

That error means that you have not enabled the web permissions for the folder your images are going to. Have your ISP enable web sharing, regular sharing, and read/write permissions for the folder where the images are to be stored. I say do all of this because I find things fail when only the web permissions are on.

I've already created a form with a field containing this name. Can you please tell me what's going on??????

Hi dear,

You have to do it, otherwise it wouldn't work. If you dont know how, then download the zip file. Open the upload.asp, click the field where browse is written. Copy and paste it onto your asp file. Thats it no mere errors.

Printing out these tutorials
February 17, 2002 by kenny darcy

Hi when ever I print out these tutorials i have to save your page and then reformat it, other wise I miss a lot of the information due to the right column over lapping the center column. this is a right pan and I believe if you had a downloadable version even with advertisements at the bottom of the page i would nt care but at the moment it is a sruggle.

I am having the same problem... I created a new file and follow those steps and now I am getting this error:

Form was submitted with no ENCTYPE="multipart/form-data"
Please correct the form attributes and try again.

I checked my form and it have the enctype set to "multipart/form-data"

Can somebody help me?

OK I found the problem, I dont know why but if you use Access 2000 it upload the picture but not the others fields to the Database.

 

So I converted my database to access 97 and it works fine.

I am working on a PIII 1.0 Ghz 512 Ram IIS 5.0 and using an access 2002/ XP

custom connection string
March 10, 2002 by james puzziferro
is there some reason why a custom connection string must be used rather than a dsn?
RE: custom connection string
March 10, 2002 by Leon Radley
No not really... it's just easier to use it in the tutorial because i don't have to show how to set up a dsn.. use what ever connection you need... to what ever database... works just as well
RE: a small problem
March 10, 2002 by Leon Radley

You probably haven't set the permissions for the file up... to do so (in win2k, don't know how it looks in another os) right klick the database file and choose properties then go to the security tab... then add the user IUSR_"computername"... then in the permissions press the allow write checkbox.. this makes the "internet" user get write permissions on the database thus making it possible to insert data...

Cheers and hope it works out now.

RE: RE: custom connection string
March 10, 2002 by james puzziferro

I'm struggling with this for some reason. I want to show the newly inserted or updated record on the redirect page. I was at one point able to get that to work before adding the pure aspupload. After adding it the record no longer inserts and I'm not redirected.

I have been trying to troubleshoot the problem. I started over with a very basic form with no file field, no aspupload and no dynamic content on the redirect page, just a "good boy it works" and it does. As soon as I add a file field it bombs. No insert and no redirect. I even tried adding the file field before adding the insert behavior and I get the same bad results. What am I doing wrong?

Is there some straightforward aproach to getting the type of tool I am trying to create?

RE: Server.Transfer
March 26, 2002 by yourarticle Stanhope

Jeff!

I have exactly the same prob with Pure ASP upload 1 - I would like to pass data from the form to the redirect page but havne't had any luck so far...I tried Server.Transfer and inserting sessions but it just throws up the "Cannot use generic request after calling BinaryRead" error message - if anyone could tell us how to get around this, that would make my day! Other than that PureASP Upload is an excellent extension and I'll gladly shell out the 50 bucks for version 2.0

Greetings,...I had a similar problem happen to me when I first started using the upload extension. I ended up downloading the 'mdac 2.5 rtm' for windows 98 from microsoft data. And the installation of the downloaded software seem to do the trick.

Hope this helps.

Image file NOT uploading
June 20, 2002 by dennis tabanera
Nice extension and tutorial. Although the extension works just fine inserting information into my database, I've been unable to upload actual image files into my 'images' directory folder. When submitting a new upload, the extension process seem to work the way it should, except the images are always missing. No error messages are prompted and redirect page is working properly. Any suggestions?

null image field value
December 1, 2002 by james puzziferro
I need the image field to have a null value if no file is uploaded so I can use something like <%If Not IsNull((afteradd.Fields.Item("image").Value)) Then%> to remove the ugly broken image display. Unfortunately the field is blank but not null and this code doesn't work. Any ideas?

Not working with recent version 2.10
April 2, 2003 by Dionísio Monteiro

I have tryed with the files supplied and it worked fine.

I copied the file to a new one and removed all the behaviours (Insert and Upload), to use the new version.

Added Insert behabiour, then ASP Upload, well, nothing works, not even the upload.

I'm thinking about asking for a refund.

ASPupload failing at a redirect stage?
April 11, 2003 by Alex White

I can't get the ASPupload to work at the moment... I just have a very simple form to upload a file (I'm not trying anything fancy like updating a record at the same time or anything like that).

Once I select the file and submit the form, I see a file= parameter and a Submit= parameter added to the URL... but nothing happens. No file is uploaded, no redirection occurs.

Any idea what I might be doing wrong, or why it isn't working for me?

 

Regards,

Alex

RE: RE: Error while uploading picture
October 31, 2003 by Carl Runge

Hi Jim,

Probably your file upload map has no writing rights. You should contact your ISP to make the changes. In my case it works now, but I have a new problem. The file uploads to the server now and also writes the uploaded filename to my database, but it doesn't include the path! The only solution for this problem I have up till now is create and ASP document in my upload map to access the uploaded file (in my case pictures). I don't want that. If you know how to change the path please let me know. I clicked on the upload map in the upload extention, so that's not the problem. Hope I got you one step further.

Good luck, you'll need it :)

Dear Tracy,

               i have the same problem that you had in the 2001, that you wrote this message:

ADODB.Recordset error '800a0bb9'

Arguments are of the wrong type, are out of acceptable range, or are in conflict with one another.

Here is line 277:

I have checked and rechecked all of the settings. What do you think is going on? I am running Win98SE, Access 97, ADO 2.5, & UltraDev 4.0. Thanks!

My problem and my conditions of work (software) are the same. Can You Help me??? Please????

My code that gives the errore is this:

RE: Error while uploading picture
May 24, 2004 by Antonio Starace

Hi,
I do exactly as explained in the tutorial but I'm not able to make the extension work correctly. The file is uploaded in the directory I choose, but nothing is written in the database. It also shows an error page with an error related to something "LBound".
What is the problem ?! The script I downloaded from the website works fine, and even if I make some changes in it, upgrading the pureASPupload version and so on, it still keeps working. If I make it from the ground up it doesn't work.

I need help. It was quite expensive for me, but if it worked it would have worth the money. Otherwise it's only a waste of money.

Bye.

I have encountered an interesting variation of the same problem.

I can upload successfully from my PC, but a user of the site in a different location is encountering the exact same message.

So it seems to work inconsistently. Could this be to do with browser security settings? Network permissions? Anyone have any ideas?

Pure ASP Tutorial by Leon Radley
January 17, 2005 by Howard Walker Walker

This tutorial is 2 years old and does not apply to the current version of MX2004.

It refers to object panels - long since abandoned, and only gives the absolute bare minimum of instruction, omitting any explanation of many of the available options in the behaviour.

You may just get it working, but don't expect it ever to function at the first attempt.

The downloaded script may well function on an old version of Ultradev, but never 'as is' on MX2004.

I suggest that for such an expensive item, there should be a proper set of instructions included with the package.

If this is the best that is available, I wish that I had spent my money on something else.

Pure ASP Tutorial by Leon Radley (2)
January 18, 2005 by Howard Walker Walker

Whilst my comments about the tutorial still stand, further investigation of the help files within the package do give a full and complete set of instructions for you to work to, including detailed tutorials. Better still, they are printer friendly, though they still refer to Ultradev, and could do with updating.

I must therefore apologise and retract my statement regarding wishing I had not bought the package. Follow the tutorials and the thing actually works well.
